*Pt. Pleasant Museum Fire*
Steamboating colleagues,
Just got on line up here in northern Michigan this morning only to see news/photos of the no doubt destructive fire at Pt. Pleasant River Museum. Sad, very sad as so many worked so hard to bring the museum to reality. Yet, hope reigns supreme and a later assessment will reveal what lost and what possibly saved. For some reasons museums in general also have a history of fires and other times water damage from broken pipes. I'll check my E=Mails and other news sources today from up north.
